Putting us right…

I would like to start by saying I love the magazine and love all the in-depth stories and history of the vehicles you cover.

While reading the latest edition I was very interested in the section about the Wolf Land Rovers. I saw the part about SNATCH armoured Land Rovers and as I served in Northern Ireland with 26 Transport Sqn in the 90s when these vehicles first made an appearance I have a bit of knowledge of them. It’s written in the section that they are called SNATCH Land Rovers because they were used to snatch people from crowds - this is not true. The name SNATCH is an abbreviation for the following: ‘Service, Northern Ireland, Anti-Terrorist, Command, Hutch’

This was written on the front of all the training manuals and servicing books when the vehicle came into service.
